It is finally confirmed - Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar Games has been drip feeding us little snippets about its upcoming Red Dead game over the past few days, but now we have a fully fledged title, as well as a ballpark release date. 

The latter sees Rockstar's new game arrive some time in Fall 2017 (Stateside), which should see it land between September and November for us in SA. The official website for the Red Dead Redemption 2 already has a pre-order page for PS4 and Xbox One, with it retailing for €69.99 (R1069).  

Along with divulging the game's expected release, Rockstar has a trailer on the way for tomorrow (20 October) at 17:00 (SAST). Precisely how much of the game it will showcase at this stage is unclear, but hopefully it will give a clearer indication of who the game's main protagonist is. Whether or not our belief that it's a prequel is correct, remains to be seen.
